    Most threadcraft or yarncraft (eg embroidery, knitting), especially if you're trying to make a relatively intricate pattern rather than just throw together a scarf or quilt or whatever

    Any kind of by-hand small-scale carving, sculpting, or other making of 3d objects

    Painting mini-figs (the little pewter or plastic figurines that RPGs use to represent characters), or any similar small-scale precision painting (eg painting dollhouse furniture)

    Caligraphy

    Nail art

    And probably lots of others.

  • Cross stitching; count from 18 upwards, which is where the details come into play.

  • 1000 or 2000 piece puzzles

    Almost anything.  Many activities are just activities, things you do to pass the time. These things don't rise to the definition of a hobby until you dig deeper into it, and that means paying more attention than the average participant does.

    A few examples:

    People say watching movies is a hobby. No, it's an activity. It becomes a hobby when the watcher starts collecting the recordings, or starts assembling knowledge, either in their head or in written/recorded form, on specific genres, actors, producers, quotes from films.  This requires attention to detail that average movie-watcher, even if they watch a lot of movies, doesn't do. A person that watches a lot of movies will obviously absorb more detail than someone who doesn't, just by osmosis, but not to the extent of someone that makes it their hobby.

    The same thing applies to listening to music.

    Just about any art requires attention to detail - painting, drawing, sculpting, photography.

    Just about all areas of collecting require attention to detail. Condition is primary; one tiny flaw most would never notice can severely reduce the value of something. Being able to correctly identify what something is, spot the difference between genuine and counterfeit, this requires attention to detail along with the acquiring of specific knowledge, which is what hobbyists do.

    Birdwatching obviously requires attention to detail.
