the magic pinch

  • impressive way to [[fold t shirts]], but it has downsides when considering the end result:
    • you can't rotate it or translate it safely in any direction without it becoming entangled due to how the sleeve ends up tucked under
    • it is very fast
    • you can rotate/move if you know the relation of the rotation/movement w.r.t. how it was folded, so it's a good pro move
    • you can make it much more resilient by just folding the result one more time in an easy move
