Level: Very Easy

Step 1.

Place your paper pattern side up.

Please excuse all of the folds, I’m reusing a sheet of origami paper I’ve already transformed into a shirt! (I’m running out of paper!)

Step 2.

Fold a small section of the paper over. About half an inch, depending on what he size of your paper is.

Step 3.

Flip your paper over. Then, take a section of the two edges and fold them over.

Step 4.

Take the ends of your paper and fold then inward. Make sure they’re evenly spaced before permanently creasing them.

Step 5.

Fold the two corers in the center of the rectangle outward. These will make the sleeves.

Step 6.

Now fold the whole rectangle in half, so the sleeves are touching the “collar”.

Step 7.

Last step! All you have to do now is tuck the end underneath the collar!

This “T-shirt” is really easy, and it doesn’t use that many folds! Therefore, after folding it, you can unfold your shirt, write a note on the inside, re-fold it, and pass it on to a friend!
