At this point, I wouldn't "undo it".
In the future, if you have a flat, inspect for "fold" marks. IF it has any, I'd replace it at that time.
Tube sizing seems somewhat iffy. I've seen some marked similar to your size that needed to stretch noticeably just to reach the minimum (1.75)marked size and others that didn't.
My 26x1.5" tires have tubes marked 1.75x 2.1 and there was no problem.
