Fabric dyed with blackberries

Gisteren heb ik stof geverfd met bramen. Dit resulteerde in mooie paarse stof waarmee ik bovenstaande kaart heb gemaakt en de ATC's die je hieronder ziet.
Yesterday I dyed some fabric with blackberries. I got some wonderful purple fabric out of it and made the postcard above and the two ATC's you see below.

Wat een leuk idee om met bramen je stof te verven. Heb je het ook gefixeerd en zo ja, waarmee? Ik kan me zo voorstellen dat bramensap verkleurd als je er soda bij zou doen, een beetje net zoiets als rode kool en afwaswater.

These are fun. You simply stained the fabric with real berries? Won't it wash out? No? How do you treat it to stay fixed?

Lovely top sewing and cute edges on the bottom ones.

Thanks for your comments
I simply stained it with berries. And I don't know if it will last. I ironed it and will not wash it again for a long time. I hope this helps. I know I could have used something to make it last for sure, but I didn't because I don't have it (yet). But I think some of it will last at least, because it is always (as good as) impossible to get it out completely of my children's cloths when a stain comes in while their eating berries.
