\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz} 
\usetikzlibrary{patterns}  

 \begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}[scale=0.3]

 \draw[smooth,pattern=north east lines] (0,0) to[out=75,in=285] (0,7.5)   to[out=255,in=105] (0,0)-- cycle;
 \draw (0,-7.5) to[out=105,in=255] (0,0);

 \draw (0,7.5)--(20,7.5);
 \draw (0,-7.5)--(20,-7.5);

  \end{tikzpicture}

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
What do you mean with "too sharp"? Is it the problem with the miter join? if so this was already answered here, in the final part, wasn't? –  JLDiaz May 13 at 16:57

Not sure exactly what you desire but just tweak the in and out angles to suit. Here they are with a 20 degree change, and a thick line style:

Code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz} 
\usetikzlibrary{patterns}  

 \begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}[scale=0.3]

 \draw[smooth,pattern=north east lines,thick] (0,0) to[out=55,in=305] (0,7.5)   to[out=235,in=125] (0,0)-- cycle;
 \draw [thick] (0,-7.5) to[out=125,in=235] (0,0);

 \draw (0,7.5)--(20,7.5);
 \draw (0,-7.5)--(20,-7.5);

  \end{tikzpicture}
 \end{document}
