The material came from Dollhouses and More which I found on Amazon and it came with a set of instructions. However, I found a method that was better for me using Modge Podge and smaller amounts of fibers. It is coming along slowly but I am pretty pleased with how it is turning out. I also watched a YouTube Video on thatching and got an idea of how it is done in the real world, so it gives me an idea of what I need to do.
I know it looks kinda of ugly now, but I think it will shape up after I am all done. One thing I must say is that you really need a strong pair of scissors as this stuff is hard to cut. The little scissors in the picture I was just using for trimming. I have to use a better pair and I may have to borrow the ones used in the kitchen for cutting chicken bones as I am afraid I am going to dull what I have in my hobby room.
More to come later, but now I have to take a little break.
