Make a Shirt out of a One Dollar Bill

Make a Shirt out of a One Dollar Bill
In this walk through, you will learn how to make a detailed collared shirt out of a one dollar bill. This makes for a unique origami project and creative way to leave a tip! See Step 1 below to get started!

Steps :

1. Fold the dollar bill in half like a hot dog bun

Fold the dollar bill in half like a hot dog bun. Make sure the picture of George is on the inside.

2. Unfold the dollar

Unfold the dollar. Fold both of the sides into the middle crease from the first fold.

3. Turn the dollar bill over and fold down the white part at the side near the edge

Turn the dollar bill over and fold down the white part at the side near the edge.

4. Turn it again

Turn it again. At the same end, fold the corners into the middle line that is made by the two folds. This will be the collar. The exact angles are not critical.

5. Fold the opposite end in as shown

Fold the opposite end in as shown. This fold can cross the circular pattern to form a “necklace”; see the front of the shirt in the next step. You can also adjust this fold to control the length of the finished shirt.

6. Fold the same end that you just folded again, up the rest of the way so the bottom fits neatly under the “collar”

Fold the same end that you just folded again, up the rest of the way so the bottom fits neatly under the “collar.” The collar holds this fold in place. You can get the best fit by tucking the end snugly under the collar and then sliding your finger to the bottom to form the crease.

7. Make the sleeves

Make the sleeves.

Unfold both of the folds you just made. Then slightly unfold the two middle folds for the “sleeves.” Take one side at the bottom of the dollar where you just made the fold in step 5. Pinch out a corner shape (reverse the crease made in step 5 on the outer edge).
Fold the side back into place with the “sleeve” sticking out.
Make the other sleeve the same way.

8 Fold both of the upwards folds back under the collar, and now you have a collared shirt made of a one dollar bill!
