Sew Wanderlust

Textile designer and illustrator Teresa Lim is never without her mini embroidery hoop, thread and needle when she’s traveling. For instead of capturing the amazing landscapes she comes across with just the snap of a camera, Teresa immerses herself into the scene and hand embroiders what she sees. Incredible.
