How To Fold A T-Shirt In 2 Seconds – Explained
Hello and welcome to VideoJug. You may have seen the film on the VideoJug website "How to Fold a T-Shirt in 2 Seconds". Here we’ll show you how it’s done in a true VideoJug fashion, step by step, ensuring that you’ll be able to do it.
You will need:
- A t-shirt.
Lay it flat
Lay the T-shirt so that it is completely flat and is side on to you.
Draw an imaginary line with your finger across the middle of the T-shirt, stopping short of the edge. Pinch the T-shirt between your thumb and forefinger of your left hand at this point, making sure that you have gripped the front and back of the T-shirt fabric.
With your other, draw a line directly up the T-shirt and pincht on the shoulder seam of the T-shirt directly above this point again making sure that you’ve gripped the front and back of the T-shirt fabric.
Bring Pinch 2 down behind your hand and pinch the T-shirt at the bottom directly beneath the two pinches and pinch the bottom along with your original pinch, again making sure that you’ve gripped the front and back of the T-shirt fabric. You should now have the top and bottom of the shirt pinched between the thumb and forefinger of your right hand - your hands should be crossed.
Keeping a firm pinch with both hands uncross your hands. Bring Pinch 1, in your left hand up and away.
The flop and fold
You should now have the T-shirt Hanging down from your two hands. Lower the T-shirt, sleeve first, back onto your flat surface, creating a fold on the T-shirt that is symmetrical with the line between your original two pinches. Bring the T-shirt down flat.
