Putting on Your Best Face

If you're crocheting an amigurumi toy or any kind of doll, and the time to put on the face has come, should you do it before or after stuffing? I think it depends on which you find easier, but my recommendation would be to do it before stuffing -- that way, you have better control over placing the stitches and taking them out if necessary. But, in determining placement of the face, you might want to put in some temporary stuffing to see what the finished head size and shape will be. Be sure to check out my tip on stuffing techniques!
