    I have done this. Make a long, flat rectangle, about 185mmW x 8mmH. Go Effect > Stylize > Round Corners. make the radius about 3mm. Go Object > Expand Appearance. Select the points at one end with the Direct Select tool (White Arrow), and go Object > Path . Average and click the Both radio button. Clean up this end by deleting the redundant points and using the Convert Anchor Point tool.

    Drag this shape to the Brushes palette and click the New Art Brush radio button. Tweak as required.
