What a cute idea! I also like to watch the 2nd hand stores for the tiny old teacups too. They make nice little gifts for your fellow crafters. Just take your cup and turn it upside down. Trace the cup edge on a piece of fabric that complements the cup. Add a quarter inch to the edge mark and cut out. Then fill your cup with fiber fill stuffing and cover with the fabric piece, carefully tucking in the edges around the fill. Using a glue gun, place glue between the inside of the cup and the tucked in edge of the fabric leaving a small area open. Add more stuffing until it is firm and seal the hole with more glue. It makes a cute little pincushion even if there is no saucer and takes only a few minutes to make. Another tiny gift for your favorite tea drinker is to take a tea cup, place a wick and fill with prepared candle wax. These make cute gifts especially if you do have a matching saucer. If you don't have time to craft a gift, you can purchase a few different types of teas and place an assortment of tea bags into a teacup. Accent with an vintage or antique teaspoon when wrapping.
