    I downsized the main piece of fabric to 4X7 inches and ended up with a 2 and1/4 cup (height). I folded down 1/2 inch at the top rim and about 1and 1/4 on the bottom that you gather. For the saucer I sewed the circles at 4and 1/2 inches and instead of leaving an opening like the pattern suggested, I cut a slit in the center of the circle that the cup will cover. The diameter of my cup ended up with about a 2 inch circle for the coffee. I sewed two 2inch circles right sides tog. and cut a slit in the center of the bottom one for turning.
    Instead of regular quilt batt, I used my Hobbs fusible cut at 2and 1/4 for the cup and I sewed the saucer circles on top of another square of the batt. I think fusible fleece would work even better for keeping the cup sides crisp. I think I shortened my handle to 3 and 1/2 inches? The trickiest part of the project was hand sewing the cup to the saucer and the coffee inside the cup. It is probably easier on the full size cup?

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost but now am found, was blind, but now I see.
