When doing this sort of work, I generally trace the pattern onto the fabric using a light box and a pencil or pen. Sometimes, if the fabric is thin enough, you don't need a light box. This fabric is thicker, so it's necessary.
I enlarged the pattern 200% to get a chicken measuring about 6 1/2" tall by 4 1/2" wide, and I cut the fabric about 8 x 6 to give me something to work with when I sew it up later.
