As promised, I've made two Paris-themed aprons to contribute to the awesome themed-apron collective projects started by Amy Karol of Angry Chicken.
I also recently ate the following deliciousness that I wanted to share with you...
Inspired by Pushing Daisies, pear pie with gruyère baked into the crust
Baguette with spiced garlic olive oil and red wine vinegar

Okay, now, here's how I made the aprons...
For the red and blue apron, I basically just cut a curve into the corner of a rectangle of fabric that was about the right size.
After stitching the front skirt to the black lining I turned it and ironed everything so it would lay flat.
I wanted to sandwich black piping into the edge of the skirt like I did on the red and blue skirt but I didn't have enough, and, as my car is still in the shop, I couldn't run out to get more. As a substitution, I ironed the skirt so that a bit of black showed all around the edge. I think it looks quite nice.
Well, here're the finished products.
