I had to order faux fur online because the local fabric store didn't have any with deep enough pile. Does faux fur have pile like carpet has pile? Is that the right word? You know what I mean.
A couple people have emailed about the method; I am following instructions from Glorious Twelfth, as I did when I thatched the Chantilly.
I started by designing and cutting a ridge cap pattern with the cricut.
Then, per instructions, I shaved down a piece of the fur (I used double-stick tape to secure it to the paper template).
I started with a number three guide, thought it was still too long to show the detail of the pointed bits in the pattern, then went down a couple of steps to 1/8". Now it might be too short and I might redesign the pattern, but I'll set it aside for now and move on.

Then I made patterns to cut the roof pieces....
...then cut, then glue, then wait overnight for it to dry.
