Fancraft or fannish crafts is an umbrella term that can refer to various types of fanworks which result in a physical object, such as fannish knitting, fannish dolls, fannish crochet, fannish embroidery, fannish jewelry and fannish ceramics.

Some fans sell their crafts at conventions, usually by participating in Artist Alley. Online platforms such as Etsy are also a popular place to buy and sell fan crafts.
