Simple Accordion fold

I was doing some color experiments yesterday, and just wanted to test them on scraps of fabric. So I did a simple accordion fold of each piece, then accordion folded them again in the opposite direction to form a square, then rubber banded them to hold the folds together. I was testing two colors full and half strength, so I have 4 samples of the same folds:
This is such a simple pattern, and yet I love how it looks! The only problem with doing this on shirts is they are thicker than this muslin, and the patterns don't show up as well. But it's an easy way to create a dye resist for a quick tie-dye!
