Inkscape has this cool trace bitmap command, so you can import a scanned bitmap, turn it into a vector, clean it up, and do whatever else you need (resize, rotate, add extra elements, etc.) – you generally then save that as an SVG, and also export a PNG at some suitable resolution for putting on the web.
