Mainsail Flaking Singlehanded

I often need to drop and flake the mainsail on my own while my wife tends to our child. I have an autopilot on our 26 foot sloop, but can anyone provide hints how I can handle the main halyard, and properly flake the mainsail myself? I don''t want to ruin the main by bunching it up on the boom.

(Second jib halyard used as topping lift while rigid vang is on order, lazy jack is on the to-do list).
