How to Fold a Shirt

I'd love to take credit for this, but alas as this woman is speaking a foreign language (and for those who know me well, it's pretty obvious that English is all I can manage) I'll guess you realize that I didn't come up with this idea.


this is a cool thing to learn.

Now, maybe this woman works in a clothing store. Maybe she has sixteen kids. Or maybe she simply wanted to find a faster way to fold a shirt.

What I can tell you is this technique works. Just this fast.


And just imagine what you can do with all that time you save.

Oh, and disclaimer time -- I do NOT know what those symbols imprinted over the video feed mean. I don't speak this language, I don't read this language. So just enjoy learning how to fold a shirt, okay?

Swing on by my porch anytime. The tea is always cool and the fans are on high this time of year in Texas.

I watched it THREE times, and I'm still not quite sure what she was doing with her left hand! Was she pinching all the way through? I'm clearly too tired now to concentrate the way I should, but I'm trying this tomorrow!

Thanks, Sandra :).

Pam said...

Oh, thank you! I had a friend show me this before, but forgot how to do it! (I don't know why I'm so excited--I hang my shirts.) But it's so cool!

And I may be swinging by your porch soon--our third straight day of 112+ here. On the good side, nothing to do but stay inside and write!

Sandra Ferguson said...

Wow, Pam, you win the Hot award.

Honestly, it just shouldn't be 112 anywhere at anytime.

Stay cool and happy writing.

Holy t-shirt, Batman. I've gotta try that.

Nikki Duncan said...

That's very cool. I'm going to show that to my daughter and husband as soon as I perfect it.

I love the reaction noises...a nice blend of "oooohhh" and what sounds like Speedy Gonzales' "Arriba" to back up the circus music.

Sarah said...

Wow, see I DO work in retail and if I could master that technique I would surely find myself basking in awed appreciation. :) And maybe it's just me, but I've never minded being appreciated.

Sandra Ferguson said...

Just received this response to the T-shirt method from a fellow writer. Too fun! Gotta love impressing people.

Sandra, I happened to be doing a mess of laundry yesterday, and I'm now in love with this t-
shirt folding method. When my husband (who wears t-shirts almost every day) was so
impressed, he actually unfolded a shirt and asked me to demonstrate.

What a fun thing to post! Thanks.


Marilyn Brant said...

I'm proud to say, I tried it (in the morning :) and it worked! SO COOL! And that it makes folding laundry "fun" may be its most magical quality...

Sandra Ferguson said...

Ooh, I couldn't agree more, Marilyn, we all need something that makes laundry just a little more fun. Glad to have entertained my friends.

Have a great day, everyone!
