Depends on your spade handle and trowel type. You might be able to source a suitable spring tool clip to screw onto the spade handle.
I sewed one pocket of my detecting jacket (army surplus) into two compartments. Pinpointer is kept in one, small archaeology trowel in the other. Works for me; no rattles.

To give people a reasonable chance of producing a practical solution for your requirement, more details on the 'trowel' would be appreciated. However, I can't see any way of attaching a trowel to the shaft of a 'digger' which would not prove cumbersome and/or heavy as a usable accessory.

In the absence of specific detail, I would suggest that consideration be given to simply suspending the trowel (by hook or by crook) from your waist-belt, which in my opinion, is the ideal medium for the job. Regards and Happy New Year -=+:-P ss47

Piccy of the finished job is always appreciated, as it could help others.
A disservice is no service at all.

How about a velcro strap? Something like this...
