Applique Snap Tabs

I shared this fun fabric earlier in the week. Those round motifs begged to be put onto a snap tab. I sat down with my embroidery software and got to work. I already had the round snap tab design from my previous project with the D20 so I all I had to do was sort out the applique portion of the design. 
First I measured the outline of the motif and tried to add the applique portion. It turned out too small so I tried a couple more times. 
I did manage to get it to this point, which is pretty good. 
Here is the progression of the project. Machine embroidery isn't something that magically works the right time the first time. I wish it did but like so many other crafts it is something that takes practice to learn and get good at.
I picked the best of the bunch and finished them as snap tabs. I'm sure I'll use this design again with other fabrics. If you are interested in something like this please contact me through my Etsy shop and I'll set up a listing for you.

The snaps I purchased from Amazon: Kam Snaps Starter Kit (affiliate link)
The swivel trigger snap hooks (affiliate link) were also purchased on Amazon

I bought both the vinyl and the fabric at a big box fabric store.
