I'm not sure if all of these are suitable for mice - I'm pretty sure the Popsicle sticks are, not sure about the colored ones, but I just pulled some old stuff out the closet and thought I'd be on the safe side and ask before putting it to good use.

This one, I have the most doubts about; but it looks cute. Anyone know if it's safe?

Does it say anything about what is used to dye the popsicle sticks? Like non-toxic or child safe dyes?

I would think it depends on the dyes used on the popsicle sticks and what type of wood the clothespins are made of.

Doesn't sat on either. However, the popsicles sticks say made of real wood - they're still safe, correct?

Yep, the plain ones will be fine. It's just the coloured ones that are questionable, as we can't be sure what they're dyed with, so it might be safer not to use them. Or use them to make things for supervised play time only - so you can stop them chewing?

Polar fleece and felt are both fine.
