I have been asked to make a memory bear out of a sweater. I've never sewn on a sweater before. Do you have any tips for me? Should I use interfacing? Is it going to fray when I cut it? I'm a little nervous about it. Thank you.

When I make memory bears out of sweaters I like them with a similar color felt for stability. 
Sweaters often tend to ravel when cut.  I use fray check on the edges of the pieces right after cutting them to keep the edges intact.
