What was used as the container for the 80 grams of PETN powder explosive?

I just read it in today’s New York Post:

Al Qaeda operatives in Yemen sewed into Abdulmutallab’s underwear a condom filled with three ounces of a nitroglycerin-like compound after he spent a month training with the terror organization, sources told ABC News.

Sorry for another Dylan quote, and a vulgar one at that, but the connection/parallel is so obvious I can’t resist. From “Desolation Row”:

Doctor Filth, he keeps his world
Inside of a leather cup
But all his sexless patients
They are trying to blow it up.
