I go ahead and stitch the head closed, since, with the decreases, it's almost all the way closed at the start, and also because on some of the hunchbacked characters, the bottom of the head remains visible.

I leave the top the the body open, since to stitch it closed, you'd either need to pinch it flat, or gather the edges-- either way, forming a somewhat unstable base for the head.

To connect the head to the body, I set the (closed) head over the top of the (open) body (Think sort of like setting a softball on the top of a drinking glass). Then I stitch all the way around where the edge of the body meets the head.

Hope that this helps!
