Annoyed with the length of time fusing to a wide tie belt was taking, I put a piece of aluminium kitchen foil (like you wrap a roast in) on the ironing board, under the fabric, fusible face down on top of the fabric. This did speed things up, and had the added bonus of preventing the edges of the fusible where I had cut inaccurately from sticking to the ironing board cover. The stray edges of the fusible peel away from the foil and its easy to trim to the fused shape afterwards. I think this aspect will be handy when fusing to small curvy shapes. You could just cut a piece of fusible roughly to shape, fuse it, then trim it.
