When I picked up sewing I wanted to make an apron and found a really pretty one on a YouTube video made by DIYmeesha.
I cut out white muslin per her instructions and folded it up and put off completing it. I had a lot going on. I got a couple yards of neat retro looking fabric to make another one out of as well, but I wanted to do it in muslin first since this was the first clothing sewing project I was attempting.
I visited her channel today and saw a comment that she had been killed. I didn’t believe it and thought the person was being a mean troll because I saw she had posted a video 4 days ago and watched it. I read through the comments and it’s indeed true, someone else linked a sad news video about her tragic death from the Sacramento news.
My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. I’m so sorry this tragedy had to happen to such a good person, and the circumstances around it made me think about a similar situation with myself. I am glad that the YouTube videos are there to remind everyone of what a good person she was, and she will keep helping people sew which is something she truly loved.
When I finish and wear my apron I’ll think of you and your family. Rest in Peace DIYmeesha.
