In the spring I caught a glimpse of The Disney Swap on Instagram. I was too late to participate in that round, but followed closely and signed up for the fall swap when the opportunity arose early last month. A week later I received details on who my partner was and what a few Disney related details. Her favorite character was Baymax from Big Hero 6 which immediately inspired my plans.

Baymax Goodies for Disney Swap exchange - peach buds candies, Hallmark Itty Bitty toy, Disney trading pins, custom Baymax pouch, and red glow sticks.

The full box of goodies I sent included a cute Baymax itty bitty, Hiro & Baymax trading pins, glow sticks (for fun because I was sending it out prior to Halloween), Butterfield’s Peach Buds candy (local to my area), and, possibly my favorite, a cute Baymax pouch. The latter I made for her. It was super easy.

Simple DIY Baymax Pouch

Here’s how to create your own Baymax pouch:


  • Canvas Pouch
  • Heat Transfer Vinyl
  • Cut File
  • Silhouette or Cricut machine
  • Hook or Weeder Tool (optional)
  • Iron or Heat Press
  • Ribbon


Step 1 Size your design and cut from heat transfer vinyl using machine.

Step 2 Weed out areas that are not part of the design. For Baymax, I only wanted to leave the outline and eyes.

Step 3 Position on pouch. Press with hot iron or mini heat press and hold for 45-60 seconds. Check to see if plastic will cleanly peel away. If not, repeat.

Step 4 Gently remove the clear plastic to reveal the design.

Step 5 Cut a 3″ strip of ribbon. Fold in half and insert through hole on zipper pull.

Step 6 Tuck ends through ribbon loop and pull to secure. Trim ribbon ends at an angle and use a lighter near the ends to carefully melt. (Be sure to just get the flame close to the ribbon and not actually touch it. You don’t want to burn the ribbon.)
