Finishing:
I do my finishing for toys in following way: I stuff the firmly, but not too much. And then place body parts together with pin needles and then sew. First I attached head to body and then arms and legs. And lastly shell. Then I sewed the cap parts together. If you want you can sew the cap to the head. 

Hope these notes are clear enough
