2015 ANG Stitch of the Month - January
Water Lily

Bottom layer, petals 1 and 5

Faggot and Reverse Faggot stitches are in the reversible stitch category of “reversible but not the same on both sides.” They are actually the same stitch. The Reverse Faggot allows the stitcher to have the reverse of the Faggot stitch while still stitching on the front of the piece. These stitches are used frequently in pulled thread work but don't need to be pulled unless you like the look. Try them in a margin of your canvas to choose the method you like best.
