How to Fold a Napkin into a T-Shirt

Learn how to fold a napkin into a t-shirt with the napkin folding instructions in this Howcast video.


Now we're going to make an origami folded t-shirt.

What we're going to do is, we are going to fold up the corners, to a square. And now, this is diamond shaped, and we're going to fold it in half. And then half again, so both these flaps come in to the fold in the center, and they meet halfway through. And then we're going to take the top two inches, which is going to end up being our collar, and we're going to tuck that back.

Now we're going to fold the collar down. Now you're going to take this upper right hand triangle, and fold it back to the center. And you'll start to see that collar take shape. And while we're doing and advancing on to our other folds, we can actually use a pen or a paperclip to hold the collar in place until we get the folds folded.

Then, what we're going to do is, for the shirt, we're going to pull it back. We're going to pull the triangles back. These are actually going to end up being our sleeves. From the base corners, we're going to fold up, towards the corners. And you can actually just put the little collar over the top of the shirt to hold that down. And you'll see your sleeves take shape. And you can undo your pin. Then we can transfer it to our plate.

And there you have an adorable t-shirt napkin.
