Sandwich Paper Pockets

Sandwich Pockets made out of paper?
Have you ever eaten a sandwich and had some of the insides fall out? That is an affirmative for me and the people around my house.
A few days ago I was making scrambled eggs for hubster when he said he didn’t have time to sit down and eat. I quickly put the scrambled eggs in a hard roll and found out they didn’t want to stay in there! I wanted hubs to have his whole sandwich – not half.  Hmmm.... I thought, what could I wrap this in so that the stuffing doesn’t come out?
I had a few paper towels and was trying to wrap the towels in such a way that I could tuck the sandwich in a pocket like thing. Subway wraps their sandwiches, right? I should be able to find a way to wrap a paper towel in a way that a sandwich roll would tuck in neatly. I tried. It didn’t work. 
Then my eyes fell upon a large cupcake paper which almost was big enough. It would work in a pinch but then I thought ‘what would be similar to a cupcake paper?’ and then a light bulb went off in my head............. COFFEE FILTERS!! (Okay, it’s not the theory of relativity but it felt good to come up with a solution to a problem.)

Large Coffee Filter

There was still a problem, however. It  was too wide and it needed to form more of a pocket SO I thought if I SEW a seam and make it more curved, it might work. So I drew a line where I thought it might be the right size for a large roll.

Coffee Filters

I sewed straight down where I had made the line with a pen.

Now it makes a pocket! All ready for the sandwich roll!

I put more than one together to make it look better.

See those eggs trying to escape to the floor? HA – little do they know the dogs are waiting for them...

Has anyone ever had this problem? How else could this be solved?

Update: Noreen from Crafty Journal and Paula from Chillin with Quillin offered the suggestion of stapling the coffee filter papers instead of sewing them. Guess what? This morning I stapled the coffee filter paper!! It works great. I hope he doesn't eat the staples. ha ha Thanks for the suggestion girls. Let's face it unless I sew a whole bunch of pockets at once it's not gonna happen. Oh, well,... it's all learning...


Best wishes,
