How to bend a flat pattern part?

I've read through all the discussions trying to find out how to bend a flat pattern. It's an irregular shape that requires a flange to be bent down at 70°. Converting to sheet metal and trying to add a sketched bend line has been an exercise in frustration. I'm fairly new to SolidWorks and don't have a lot of experience with the sheet metal feature other than adding flanges and embossed in class examples. Any help would be appreciated. I've attached a sketch of the part I need to bend.
