“THE other magical requisites are: a sceptre, a sword, a mitre, a cap, a long white robe of linen, and other garments for the purpose; also a girdle of lion’s skin three inches broad, with all the names written about it which he round the outmost part of the Magical Circle. Also, perfumes and a chafing-dish of charcoal kindled to put the fumes on, to smoke or perfume the place appointed for action; also anointing oil to anoint thy temples and thine eyes with; and fair water to wash thyself in.” The Lesser Key of Solomon

Stitching the leather is no easy task and was accomplished using a large leather stitch needle, small hammer and block of wood as the base to assist tapping the needle through the leather.
