Bicycle Bell Cozie

First I want to mention that this bell cozie does muffle the bell a bit. When I first made it I covered the majority of the bell....and realized that it muffled the bell too much. So I ripped it apart and started over, testing the bell as I worked until I was happy with how it looked and sounded. The bell still works great, but it is a bit quieter. Now grab your supplies, and lets make a bell cozie! This pattern is really easy, and works up very FAST!
