Fabric Frame- DIY

This weekend I received my LOVE print from MadeByGirl.  I originally thought I would find a funky vintage frame and spray paint it a bright color.  With my impatience, I wanted it up and framed ASAP!  This past weekend (June in SF = still cold and rainy) I thought it'd be fun to stay in and try a little DIY project.

Loving this new grapefruit color in my space.
Luckily, I had the right size IKEA Ribba frame lying around.
A yard of Chiang Mai Dragon fabric from F.Schumacher- One of my Favs!
 A little cutting, a glue gun and off I go.  Being that I was home alone with my 2 little kiddos, I was battling them grabbing the glue gun & fabric scraps so I didn't get good 'process' pics.  Instead I just got a lot of glue gun burns while working fast.  ha!

The finished product!
