Now, do you fold the shirt along the indicated lines with the person in it or must they be extracted first?

Also, if the person in the shirt is female, there are a couple extra bump outs to deal with.

Then there is the obligitory question, "will this work with a mac?"

CNN has just won the rights to broadcast the World Origami Championships.
Unfortunately it's only available on paper view.

Ironically, step 5 is eerily similar to how I fold my t-shirts.

Actually, a young lady figured out how to do 12 times a few years ago. See link

The 3rd one is actually flipped and rotated. So, while lazy, not quite as lazy as you point out.

Wasn't there a derby entry a couple months back almost exactly like this?

Going to do my research now.

Prepare to get the "Wagging Finger of Shame" if it's too similar.

Bad, hippojack! Bad! So sit on the naughty step and contemplate your sins!

(Ok, I laughed.)

I love this shirt. I've even considered using simple origami to try to teach my students basic listening skills, but I'm afraid that I'll end up with exactly these results!

Grrr... Can't find it. I know it's there somewhere.

For now you get the "Raised Eyebrow of Suspicion"

I prefer to use dollar bills for Origami. If it goes wrong I can just go buy a donut instead.

Other people are very good at this though. And then... there's Mike Jittlov.

Looks great, but he should have also included instructions how to make an origami rock.

This would have been much more profound if the crumpled up paper had represented the brain only. I would dig that.

How about this?

You should have emailed me for the file dude! Would have saved you even more time than rotating the bottom bit did. :D

Hey Jewelwing, I see what you're talking about with the similarity. I submitted this concept to Threadless about 2 and a half years ago (http://www.threadless.com/submission/131840/Basic_Origami/showmore,designs) so I think it's just a case of two people having the same idea.

Thanks to everyone for the positive thoughts, always so cool to see my shirts on Woot and I love you all!

Not so; Each one was rotated 90 degrees and flipped. The abstract sculpture was even rotated to an odd angle; it is as if it is peering into the dark depths of my soul. Anyway, you're just jealous of his artistic talent.

I am just so happy that it's an origami related shirt. Plus it's not green!

I hate looking at derby candidates because there always seems to be an origami shirt in the top 10, but not in the top 3.

Since this shirt looks like actual diagrams, and the other doesn't, I would say that they are only somewhat similar in concept. The execution of this one is much better, IMHO. I have been doing origami for 27 years. I ordered this shirt; I would not have ordered the other.

That's why I put "I guess they're not THAT similar"

I couldn't exactly remember the derby entry... only that they were similar.. I decided no "wagging finger of shame" was necessary.

I do like this shirt... I can relate to the inablity to do any origami (except ninja stars)

I'll have to pass though.

Guess yours is older, you win. Wish I would have known. I'd have asked you for the file when I was making mine! Surprising that no one said anything during the derby.

I'm glad to know the idea has already been to Threadless tho. My version was on my list of things to rework and sub there, but I guess now I can just take a nap instead.
