The larger of these two scissors absolutely do what I need. Cutting fleece and cotton together, and many other types of fabric. The small ones are good for excess string, or paper (scrapbooking) etc. I wouldn't use them for fabric. Also, as a note, the small ones are helpful to trim up hair on dog bellies during the summer. ;) (I have a 3yo aussie mix.) Wish the handles were a smidge bigger.
