Layer the fused fabric front, one layer of batting, and one layer of insulated batting (both cut to the same dimensions as the front and back of the camper). The insulated batting needs to be placed with the shiny side towards the back. The bottom layer will be the fabric back with the wrong side up. Pin the layers together.
Now use a small zig zag stitch to stitch along all the outlines. This will keep the fabric permanently in place. And it looks pretty cool too!

Here is the pot holder with all the zig zag stitches in place. Now we need to add the binding to finish it!
Cut 1-1/4″ wide fabric on the bias for the binding. Sew the binding into place. (I used a sewing machine to sew the binding to the front, and then hand stitched it to the back, easing the fabric to the curves). For more details on binding, see my quilt binding tutorial.
Here are the finished happy camper potholders!
