I'll like to make them more secure and less wonky looking. Is there some sort of trick to attach pieces and make it look nice? Sometimes legs/arms come off or the space between the head and body look really weird. 

I found a picture tutorial forever ago but lost the link.

Wolfdreamer (who makes amazing Pokemon amigurumi and shares patterns for them for free!) has a nice little note here.  To sum up, she basically says to take your time and pin pieces together so you can get it right before you start sewing.

One trick I've found to make them fit nicely together is to sew into each stitch in one piece to the matching stitch on the other piece and don't skip any.  That way your sewing lines up with the crochet stitches and looks like it's part of the pattern.

I completely agree with the pinning thing -- it's made a huge difference in how I get my pieces to connect in the end -- especially on projects that have a lot of markings or features sewn on after the main body parts are done. Placing the legs and arms on symmetrically has also been positively affected, haha. Shocked)
