If you want to craft for EXP, Jewellery is really quick and easy, and won't cost you too much. Primarily using ores and gemstone (ruby, opal, sapphire orbs/crystals/shards etc)

Cooking used to be the best, it was nerfed a little so I'm not sure on it's merits anymore.

There is also an entire sub-section of this forum dedicated to crafting -- Droknar's Forge.  There are a couple of stickied crafting guides there that can be quite helpful.

One thing to keep in mind is that the Discovery pane in your crafting window will level you up faster than just going with the known default recipes.  Not at home right now to double-check, but most armor crafting (whether Tailor, Leatherworker, Armorsmith) usually requires a two "base" items (such as a glove lining and glove strap) plus an insignia/rune.  The kind of base item and insignia change as you level up and gain access to higher level materials and items (a "rawhide" glove lining versus a more advanced "wool" glove lining), but the formula remains mostly the same.

In GW2, you should aim to NEVER repeat the same recipy twice. Discovering new recipies gets you 2+ levels each time, while repeating an already discovered recipy gets you like 10% of one level.

If you are working on leatherwork, you should aim to craft 1 insignia, and then combine it for example with a gloves pannel + gloves lining to make a new kind of gloves. After that, if you craft the same insignia, do not repeat the same gloves, try rather with the shoe parts to make a new sort of shoes. This way, you will level up your crafting much faster than just repeating a single type of insignia.

Artificing is the cheapest if you level via potions, there's a guide on these forums (gw2guru). Also, don't level by grinding one recipe, you get way more experience from discovering recipes.
