I made a quilt with my mom once and that is my favorite thing I've made with my hands.

Jamie said...

I love to make jewelry - but of course I love buying the stuff to make jewelry even more.

Hannah said...

hmmm...that's a hard question. I like to switch things up. I like card making, knitting blankets, jewelry making, book binding...

I can't pick.

Darling earrings.

homemade granola. It's easy and I love knowing exactly what is in my granola and it's tasty too.

I also like to carve my own stamps.

Thanks for this!

Camille Lewis said...

Love those earrings! I took a "bookbinding" class in college, and ever since then I love to make handmade journals/photo albums/note books. They are fantastic journals, and even better gifts.

RW said...

I like to make my own Christmas cards. The last year my husband and I worked together to create one.

Love the earringss.

{ella} said...

I'm going to say crocheted baby blankets. It's calming for me and my friends love them.

And I love those earrings!

bets said...

that's a toughie because there are quite a lot of things i like to make...cookies, fabric animals, paintings, magazine collages, cards. basically, i just like making art.

such purdy little earrings-so feminine.

Eric and Hannah said...

Lately, I've really been loving making quilts. Also, I like making cookies! (but mostly eating them :)

Leslie said...

Cross stitching. I don't do them as often as I'd like and I have unfinished projects waiting to be done, but I do enjoy making them!

Allison and Tyler said...

my favorite thing to make by hand...treats! i love baking...and eating!

Oh Mandie! said...

I make a ton of stuff, but by far my favorite are the scrapbooks I keep of my children and making all of the pages to go inside of them

I like blogging & editing pics [aka virtual scrapbooking :)] and baking. I decided that I'm going to try my hand at jewelery making, hopefully I like that. I also like crocheting and knitting.

Mara from Motherofalltrips said...

I'm about the least crafty person in the world, but I do love making bread. My family hasn't tasted store-bought bread in years!

These earrings are adorable. Why would I want to make things when there are so many other people who can make so much loveliness? :)

Ann Marie said...

pretty! pretty! pretty! i love making ghee...it smells so yummy as it cooks on the stove, and it is heaven when it is still warm on a piece of homemade wheat bread.

ampersandity said...

these are so pretty! fave thing to make by hand... anything that requires handlettering :]

Courtney B said...

hmmmm... what do i love making by hand? i actually love writing, journals, baby books, etc. i love the feeling of writing, although, i don't have penmanship to write home about ;)

Lena said...

Baby sweaters! They knit up so quickly and are so dang cute it is super satisfying.

Rachel said...

I love making pizza! It always tates better homemade.

Andrea said...

I am really getting into making toys for my son. Little balls and blocks are so quick and easy!

Anna Kristina said...

I'm very much a digital gal, but I get pickier about some of my food from scratch, specifically chocolate chip cookies and macaroni and cheese. So tasty!

nancy said...

really cute shop!
well, i love making all things, but my favorite is probably either apple pie from my mom's recipe, or baby quilts. i love how quickly they come together and how cute they are.

cleverly content said...

love painting, creating, upcycling...I usually have more projects in mind then time.

Tanya said...

Love everything in her shop. So cute!

Although I sew for both my children, I love making dresses for my 3 year old daughter. Her face just lights up as she twirls around and I swear ... I just tear up each time. She is always so proud of her new item -- even if the ruffles aren't perfect or the stripes don't line up. :)

karperks said...

I love making gift tags. It's cheaper than buying a card, and I can personalize them to the person receiving the gift!

sherlonkahkai said...

Pretty earrings.

Actually, I am working on some necklaces with rolled fabric flowers and fabric buttons. They are just cute.

ashlynn said...

I would love these especially since Kim j & I tried making some last night & they just didn't work out so great. :)

Phoenix Peacock said...

My problem is narrowing down what I like to make! I love making fresh blueberrie pie and collaging postcards!

Lisa said...

I love making chicken vegetable soup from scratch. I make the stock myself and everything. No matter how much I make, it never lasts long.

Adorable earrings!!!!

Amy said...

I love to make so many things! Lately I'd have to say homemade bread, and mini aprons for little girls.
This jewelry is beautiful!

I love to make brownies, cookies, muffins, coin purses, cloth napkins, and MORE!

Julia said...

My favourite thing to make is a knitted hat. I have more than I can ever use, and so does everyone I know, but I have the pattern memorized, and they're so fast and easy. Plus I've yet to manage a sweater.

abby @ tales and trials said...

I like making chocolate chip oatmel cookies from scratch. I use my MIL's recipe and I like to imagine I am back sitting in her living room in my hometown while I eat one!

Love those earrings. They're so unique!

Liz said...

My favorite thing to make by hand is definitely any kind of baked goods. The store-bought equivalents are never half as yummy!

Sassy Sarah said...

Estee said...

I love to cook, but my favorite is making fancy desserts from simple things, like taking a nice brandy glass and fill it with heart shaped cake pieces, whipped cream and strawberies. So simple but looks like I worked hours on the dish.

Bread! For some reason I loooove making bread. There's nothing more delicious! :)
