I know it one might think why not just buy some fleece and cut it to make my boys blankets. I have done that in the past, but have not been able to find fleece this soft and I always end up with crazy little squares. Yes I could use be more precise in my cutting measurements. These precut squares of softness make it easy to change out my boys’ “blankies” as often as needed/desired. It’s one less thing I have to be concerned with in my hectic schedule. They are very affordable and last well through washings.
