    My favourite craft as a child: let’s see….. I really liked (and still do) to make things for family at Christmas time. Handmade things from the heart. No matter how “homely” it may be, the thought is what counts. My favourite gift, is the same in return. Even to this day,I was taught to cook and sew when young..those were the things I did for others. Of course, a good glue “goop” recipe was always fun too.

    Thank you

    Loved to make cards for my Mom & Dad. I once made a card with a construction basket that I left open in the middle & filled with tons of dried flowers. My Mother loved it & kept it for years. When she gave each of us kids our things back from our childhood, that card with in there. I actually recycled the card, by using the dried flowers for another craft project. I still like to make cards!

    I lived anything with Elmer’s white glue. I would always cover my hand and let dry and peel it. Even when I got older I would still do it and in science class I would put it under the microscope! Too much fun and still love!

  5. Sue says

    I love all kinds of crafts from flower arranging to tole painting. I also draw freehand pictures & doodle art. My Mom always was baking & sewing she made me a beanbag out of a scrap of fabric that I still cherish today that was over 50 yrs. ago. My daughter also played with that beanbag. I’ve since retired it to a special box. I also crochet never a dull moment spent at my house. I enjoy life & living & crafting in my home.

  10. Ileene Fischer says

    When I was in grammar school my mother taught me to crochet and sew. I would make clothes for my dolls. I would have to go with her to her sewing room when my older sisters boyfriends would come to see her. So you see, We got a fair amount of sewing time in.

  11. Belinda Smith says

    My favorite crafting projects are fabric painting. I love taking a piece of clothing that has been stained or torn and refributing it, with pictures I paint, and embellishment of different kinds of glitter or lace or beads, ribbons, buttons, anything I can fine to work with. I have made many shirts over the years for my children and grandchildren, and to show there thanks, when they out grow them they cut the front painted squares and send to the mom, and she make a family quilt out of them. I also like to share my craft with anyone who thinks they can’t paint. I always say if you can color in a coloring book, you can paint any picture you want.

    I liked to take odds and ends (usually thrown away) and turn them into treasures, repurposing way back before it was cool.

  13. Cindy Sherwood says

    I would take odds and ends (usually from the trash) and transform them into something handy and useful, way back before repurposing was cool.

    I loved sculpting things out of play-doh and making books out of bits of paper, embellished with pictures, either drawn on the paper or glued on with trusty Elmer’s School Glue – or whatever they called it then…

    Pamela Larson my mother was a great influence in my life .she taught me to make things. she taught me to sew, crochet,embroider, to garden. she taught me the basics and then I went on from there. I’ve made afghans for all 8 of my children and all 15 of my grandchildren. I made baby quilts and baby afghan. recently I started making jewelry and soon I want to start painting with oils, acrylic and water colors. I’ve worked with wood and metal also.

    I had two favorites…chewing gum wrapper chains and paper fans (I colored both sides of the paper first).

  19. Maureen Greene says

    Potholders! I must have made a thousand…cotton loops, nylon loops, plaids, solid, random…everyone we knew got potholders.

    I was recently cleaning out my aunt’s kitchen and there were still 5 of them — well worn — in her drawer. Are they antiques if they are over 50 years old???

  20. says

    The earliest craft I remember is drawing. I loved Charlie Brown and would draw the cartoon as I read it. I think my grandma still has some of my drawings. 😀

  24. Kim M says

    We have a lot of snow days here. My mom would save magazines, newspapers, cards, egg cartons, cereal boxes, scraps of yarn, material. I would spend hours making doll houses, along with furniture, home made cards, collages, tree ornaments, snow flakes. I really miss those days and my mom. I try to keep my kids and grand-kids interested in crafting. Thank You….

  25. Helena Horne says

    When I was a child, I enjoyed to loom! I would also mess with leaves from trees and color them and make them into paper crafts. Looming, I would make hats and scarfs. But I tryed everything that was crafty.
