Now is a good time to add your safety eyes and begin to stuff with poly-fil.

Fasten off leaving long tail.
With a tapestry needle, weave in strands so the bottom closes. To do this you will make what is almost a SC decrease with your tapestry needle (but no yarn over). Just insert your needle under front loops of two crochet stitches. Keep doing this all the way around and pull tight.
