I decided to make the body first, before finishing the head. There are a lot of small cracks as I didn't bother to finish the surface, because it's going to be covered in black felt.
The head is held in place with a small peg that goes into a hole in the neck and another hole in the head.
I'm going to use pipe cleaner for the arms, so I made a hole through the body. The legs are made of wood and as you can see, he can stand even without feet in place, so after I have made the feet, his balance should be fine.
