|I have been just carefully doing a running stitch using both of the inside layers of the fabric when I slipstitch a hole together, such as one left when a turn a garment right side out. But, is this the right way?||

If you are doing a slip stitch at a seamline, it is done at the two creases. You just take one tiny bite of one side and a tiny bite of the other. All thread and stitches are between the fabrics, much like you do when you are sewing a seam on a machine, just by hand. You do not usually lap the fabrics, although if I am closing a stuffed animal, I usually do fold one side and leave the other side unfolded, then I run the stitching between the fold and what would be the seamline of the other side. I think that it hides the closing better.
