Queens Day

On April 30th it will be Queens Day (or Koninginnedag in Dutch) in the Netherlands.
I have only been living in the Netherlands for 1 1/2 years but like to think I am slowly becoming a part of the culture (especially as I learn the language). As such I thought (with some input from my boyfriend) that it would be good to make a badge to wear (and sell) for Queens Day.

The badge is made from an orange fabric yoyo (orange is very big in the Netherlands), and on top is a felt flag (I painted the red and blue stripes myself). Of course as it is a badge there is a pin on the back so everyone can wear it with pride!

I have a couple of these made and am listing them on Etsy. They are €1.50 + postage (€0.50).
