Embroidery smiles

I knit toys. Many of them have embroidered eyes, noses etc. but it is the smiles that give them their charm. My patterns show nice crisp lines but when I do it the lines are not smooth. They wander and ruin the look. Any suggestions?

I tried back stitch but even when I go back to the previous hole it is sloppy. Have you tried catching the previous stitch and getting a bit of an anchor?
