I am crocheting a Ramona Peep doll for seaofstars, and I have hit a massive problem.

Everything is crocheting beautifully.  The head, body, arms, and legs are done, and all that is left is the hair, dress, and shoes.

Problem is, I can't figure out how on earth to attach each piece. It says to use the tail to sew them together, but how? 

I am about in tears, because this is so frustrating.  I really wanted to send it out this week, but I can't figure out how to finish it.

Please help!

The thing about sewing onto crochet is that you don't have to worry too hard aboutyo stitches showing, because likely, it won't.

What you should do is to string the tail through each stitch at the open end of each limb and attach it to the appropriate place on the doll. Once you're done all the stiches, just stab randomly around the limb and pull it out a few times before securing the tail.

I'm not quite sure I'm following. 

So, if I am working with the tail on the head, do I string the tail through each stitch in the bottom of the head, or the top of the body?  How do I attach it to the appropriate place on the doll?  Should I use my fingers or a crochet hook to do this?  (I tried using the hook, but the yarn just slid off.)

The way I did it was to use either tail, it didn't matter. I used a needle to achieve this. Theoretically you might be able to slip stitch the head to the body (or limbs to the body for that matter) but the wide-eye needle is just way more efficient.
