Is the first page a home page?
I was confused in the sense that there was no explanation of anything but difficult to read type that said, "Customize your knit headgear".
I would rethink that type treatment as it doesn't "pop" against the illustration and takes effort to read. The color sort of clashes with the color selected for the accessories as well.

Once into the tool:
I might consider having a separation for an area called "Text" where they could enter their text and see how their specific product would look, rather than having to look at "McClancy" all of the time. It makes it seem more personal and the user gets a better sense of the actual product.

I might instead default to the lower required quantity number.

Small thing that comes from maybe dealing with data too much...where you state the price, the hyphen looks like a negative value of the price instead of like a hyphen. Maybe a space after the hyphen or a colon?

Labels of "Color 1" and "Color 2" are confusing since the widget on the left states "Product" and "Print" for the corresponding values. I would keep "Product" and "Print".

I might consider a different color for the quantity field to make it look more like and input. I am not clear as to what I can and cannot edit.

Your saved form doesn't have your URL on it, the date I created the sample, any contact information vis-à-vis an email or a phone number.

This was quick, but I hope it is helpful.

It took me a bit to figure out how to use this one. I would have preferred
'style' and 'color' to be located below the customization window (or
elsewhere but essentially not grouped together with style) since I would
imagine one would first choose a woolen and then customize it. So 'type' is
one category and the other 'customization' category is 'style' and 'color'.

On a side note, this site immediately reminded me about The Mongolian Shoe
BBQ site that Puma came out with a few years back which was fantastically
done. URL: http://www.conetrees.com/2006/12/blog/mongolian-shoe-bbq-by-puma/.
The site is still on but the interface has changed. You chose
materials
with chopsticks earlier and even then it was surprisingly simple to use.
