There's a tool - I forget its name (it's been a day or two since I was working leather) - that you can use to thin leather where you are making a bend, like your fold-over flap.

PS - At Tandy, it's called a "safety beveler" - $7.99. Another is the "Super Skiver" - $10.99. The skiver is the one I was thinking of. Another is the "Adjustable V Gouge" - $29.99. Probably the best choice, as that is what it's designed for.
