I made this upcycled pincushion from a salt shaker for the recent Box of Sunshine swap.  The salt shaker came from my local Goodwill store.  I must say that it's a good thing there wasn't a mate for it because I might have had a hard time giving them up!

I laid a piece of fabric down on the inside under the top holes before filling the shaker with polyfill.  My hope was that the fabric would keep the filling from creeping out through the holes over time. I didn't glue anything down because I thought the recipient might someday want to use it as a salt shaker again.  I found that the blunt end of a bamboo skewer was just right for stuffing the filling in through the plughole at the bottom of the shaker.  Bamboo skewers are wonderful tools!
