Assembly or Dissection?

Sometimes the assembly process actually looks more like a dissection...

 This adorable Ballerina Mouse is well on her way to being completed.

Crochet sections are done and I just need to source some ribbon
 for the ballet shoes and then I will begin attaching all the little parts.

The body construction is unusual, in that both ends are closed...
which means that the closed head needs to be attached to the closed neck.
I think that every other toy I have ever worked on had an open neck, which the head sat on.

I'll let you know how it goes!
