My sister recently left for college. When she left, I inherited all of her chores. One of the chores, which I've grown to hate, is folding clothes. My friend told me about a piece of cardboard that could fold t-shirts. So i googled it , found the plans and made the T-shirt Folding Machine.
It is very easy to make, and once made all you have to do is place a shirt on it, and flip a few pieces of cardboard, and your done.

Step 1: Parts
The only thing you will need is a couple of pieces of cardboard, a tape measure, tape, and a marker.
Step 2: Cutting the Pieces
You will need to trace and cut out the following sized pieces of cardboard:
2 pieces 30 inches long and 7.5 inches wide
1 piece 12 inches long and 9 inches wide
1 piece 18 inches long and 9 inches wide
Step 3: Assembily
Lay out all the pieces on a flat surface. Put the 9 by 12 (A) piece down. Then put the 18 by 12 (B) piece directly below it. Tape the two firmly together. Lastly, put both 30 by 7.5 (C) pieces on both sides of AB. Tape C to A, but make sure not to take C to B.
Flip the whole thing over and tape the same areas again to make it stronger.
If you are confused:
A= 9 inch by 12 inch piece
B= 18 inch by 12 inch piece
C= 30 inch by 7.5 inch piece
Step 4: Using It
To use your new T-shirt Folding Machine, put a shirt on it, fold both C's, one at a time, then fold B up, and you done.
If you want to make it neater and smaller; then take B and fold it in half. Then when you are using the machine, fold the bottom half of B up then the entire B piece up. This will greatly help.
