Is there any tutorial to show me how can I make icons (like the facebook icon for example) look like handmade?
An example of such icons is here :

Thank you.

This just looks like good use of the Sketch filter 'Graphic Pen' and a slight skew.

Have a play with the Graphic Pen, it works on your foreground and background colours so make sure you have them selected right.

Seem straight forward to me. Work out how much it would cost you at your hourly rate to get the result you want and then find out the cost of the image you want.

You could right a fairly good business case to buy them.
