Knit a Birthday Badge

I love the idea of knitting with more than one colour at a time, it just multiplies the possibilities!

Here is a birthday badge I made a few weeks ago for my youngest daughter's 9th birthday:

For this, I knitted 2 pieces, the second piece a plain pink circle, sewed them together adding some cotton wool to give it the required thickness, and attached a safety pins at the back to be able to pin the badge to my daughter's clothes.

I think I'll make a few more for my Etsy shop, with different colours and ages, as it's the ideal project for someone like me who wants to be able to produce a bigger quantity in less time.

I'd like to hear your ideas in the comments section, do you like/hate it, do you like the idea of a handmade item rather than a cheap plastic birthday badge?
