“Sew- a needle pulling thread!”
Remember that famous line from Sound of Music? Teresa Lim, a 24-year-old Singaporean designer, is putting those lyrics into her wanderlust spirit. Instead of taking selfies all over the world, she has artistically created striking canvases by simply utilizing, well, a needle pulling thread.
From Prague’s Charles Bridge, Perth’s Serpentine Falls, London’s Big Ben to North Vietnam’s Halong Bay; Lim’s jetset take on a classic form of art suddenly makes polaroids seem completely outdated.
According to her website, Lim follows her own design philosophy:
To fuse three of her interests together: Illustrations, Embroidery and surface pattern design. Her designs seek to blur the lines and boundaries between being an illustrator and a textile designer. She gets inspired by books and characters she meets on a daily basis.
Not only have her footsteps been traversing all over the world, Lim’s design skills have been featured throughout Asia (Bangkok, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo). You can check out her complete collection of travel canvases under the label Sew Wanderlust on her website Tee Tee Hee Hee which already has us going gaga.
