If I was doing this, I would use the gimp to manipulate the icons :

I normally use it for photographs, with my own _very_ idiosyncratic
workflow, but in the last couple of months I needed some icons for
an sddm theme.  The process of painting into a small image is not
_too_ hard (zoom in, then zoom in a bit more, and select at the
pixel level).  From there, you can of course save in any suitable

I saw someone noting that png files are somewhat alien to windows
users, but I guess you will end up with a PDF and whatever
intermediate format for the icon suits your process.

Whatever you do, enjoy it!
