Hove tote

Regular price $22.00

Hove tote

The Hove tote pattern came about as a result of a Curated by ITF member’s challenge to Emily to create a bag derived from one of her signature pattern designs. Inspired and invigorated by the idea, Emily began to play with the Hove jacket, and here we are!

Garment Details

A tote bag with a twist, the Hove tote pattern is all about bending the rules (and the fabric!) to achieve a result that’s a bit different to the norm. With a puzzle-like construction and seam finishes on the outside, it can be made all in one fabric or in contrasting colours to highlight the different sections and shapes.

Suggested Fabrics

The Hove tote is compatible with mid-weight woven fabrics such as: linen, linen blends, cotton canvas, cotton drill and denim. The pattern lends itself well to colour blocking. Fabric requirements can be found here.

Keep in mind that the weight of the fabric will determine the amount of structure and drape in the finished bag. Be careful if using a fabric that doesn't have a stable weave as it may be difficult to work with.


  • Coordinating thread

  • 6m (6.6yd) x 25mm (1in) single-fold bias tape OR 1m (1.1yd) lightweight cotton fabric to make your own

  • 0.25m (0.3yd) lightweight fusible interfacing

Pattern includes seam allowances.


The pattern is placed at a Level 2 on the In The Folds pattern skill scale, and has been designed for advanced beginners and beyond. Through careful drafting and beautiful finishing techniques, this pattern will have you feeling very proud of both the inside and outside of your garment.
