SEW WANDERLUST — Teresa Lim Embroiders Her Travels On-Site Instead Of Taking Photos via boredpanda

Designer Teresa Lim decided she did not want to look like an average tourist, so she thought of a very unique way on how to preserve the memories from her trips.

Anywhere Teresa goes, she takes the time to make an embroidered souvenir, depicting the landscape or landmarks that she visited. As of now she has brought these little souvenirs from such places as Vietnam, Tokyo, Prague, Germany.

“I started the project late 2014 after I realised that with today’s state of the art technology, taking pictures becomes so easy. I wanted something more from my travels, to be able to take back a part of that place with me. When I’m done with a piece, I actually feel like I KNOW that place, and that gives me a huge sense of satisfaction that I think just taking a photo wouldn’t give.”
