Shire Rations

Posted on Updated on

Some other Lord of the Rings posts you might enjoy





For the well traveled Hobbit I bring you shire rations. A lightweight cloth bag with drawstring; lined to water proof it and protect it from the elements.


This Shire Ration is not the Superior Shire ration, the superior is much larger and designed to feed a large group. This ration is for one Hobbit adventurer.


It contains:


2   Sharp cheese wheels


5   marinated chicken cutlets (turkey jerkey)


1   shire apple


Perfect for a Hobbit’s grand adventure.


I found a brown cloth remnant very cheap and small piece of cord. My husband is actually the sewer of the family. I described what kind of pouch I wanted, handed him the cloth and cord, I showed him what I was putting into it. So he would know how big to make it. About half an hour later, he handed it to me. He doesn’t use a pattern, just cuts out a bag shape and sews it together.







The best thing about handmade is it’s not supposed to be perfect. Irregularities give pieces character.




Here is a photo of the rations all packed up and ready to go.
